Time and How to Spend It: The 7 Rules for Richer, Happier Days
James Wallman's Time and How to Spend It is a mixed bag. I found the first half a struggle - trying to overlay a book structure onto your holiday arrangements seems great in theory, but in reality no-one does, or would do, that. Plus, the anecdotes seem shoe-horned into places where they didn't belong, with a few even seemingly unrelated to the point being make. The writing was wordy and too chummy for describing intelligent lifestyle improvements where a succinct idea economically stated would have a greater impact - it felt as though he wasn't sure who his audience was. I was on the point of putting the book down, but the second half started resonating with me - topics like status and significance I felt were insightful and helpful. A good read, but you may find like me, some chapters are very skippable.
